1. I prefer blank cards, that way I can add my own personal note.

2. I love whimsical sayings.

3. I really don't have a preference, I will buy the card because I like the card. I think the design of the card dictates the overall size.

4. Definitely depends on the card. I will go as high as $6.00.

I like blank cards.
I like zen type sayings.
Hmm, I like small/med sized cards, not ones that require extra postage.

I like to pay about $3.00 or $4.00 for a card.

Beautiful Treasury that you created!

1. Do you prefer blank cards or cards with messages?

Blank cards, but it depends on the message.

2. What kind of messages do you like (if any)?

I love cards similar to the ones I make--bitter, sarcastic, dry humor, clever combinations of words and pictures, etc. Nothing sweet or schmaltzy--if there's a message it should be something that will make me laugh. Also simple messages like "hello" and "thank you".

3. What is your favorite size for a single card?

Unusual shapes & sizes or smaller cards like 4 bar--but any size is OK. Long and skinny is another of my favorites.

4. How much would you pay for a single card?

Depends on the card & the method of production--up to $5 for a letterpressed card or even more for something truly and time-consumingly handmade; not more than $3 for a computer-printed card.

Amy said...

1. I prefer blank cards.

2. When there are sayings, I like them to be really simple: Happy Birthday. Thank You. etc. I want to add the personalized touch myself.

3. I don't have a favorite. I think it depends on the design - some designs need more room to breathe, others look great in miniature. That said, I like odd and unusual sizes and shapes though.

4. Up to $7 for a great card.

Precious Quilts said...

Lyndsay said...

1. I prefer blank cards so I can write my own message, but something short and simple already on the card is OK too.

2. I like short sayings so I can write more of my own thoughts. Stuff like "Get Well" "Happy Birthday", "Thank You", and "Congratulations" are always good.
3. I like 4x5 or something similar for the size. I don't usually like to pay for extra postage.
4. I'll pay up to $4.00-5.00 for a card if it's good.

Thanks!

Hello, Thanks for sponsoring another great contest! I like blank and simple worded cards. The more simplistic the wording is, the more I like the card. The average size card is what I use. Depending on the person and the situation, I pay up to $6.00 or so for the card! Cindi

I purchased from BellaRoseCreations Lisa was wonderful! It was a custom order. When I was unsure of one style she had shown me, she listened to what I had in mind and quickly got to me.

1. Do you prefer blank cards or cards with messages?

Blank interiors, although a few words on the outside are fine.

2. What kind of messages do you like (if any)?

I prefer nonstandard messages. Things that can be used for more than one occasion, sweet sayings, or punny jokes win out every time over the standard "Happy Birthday"

3. What is your favorite size for a single card?

The quarter of a sheet of paper size. : ) I have small handwriting, I like something that doesn't lose my note.

4. How much would you pay for a single card?

It depends on the card. If it were a handpainted original, I would pay a lot more. It also has to do with shipping. If I find a card that's $4, which I am fine with and shipping is $3.50, I will probably go elsewhere.
